New box set in the house. These are a few of my favorite things:

Incredible sound
Great set lists
Outstanding playing (Bird Song on Vancouver 73, the appregio on China Cat; that’s as far in as I’ve been so far, savoring this shit)
Terroir — Turtle Island, Alta California, Edge City
Liner notes by Mr Meriwether (including shoutouts to Gary Snyder)
The box (just exactly perfect)
This is my wheelhouse, saw all my shows from 70-74

Got the vinyl box of the Portland show too. Looking forward to that with a nice Willamette Valley Pinot and some Blue Dream

I was digging the sonics on the mp3 teasers that were posted to Dead.net. Stoked to hear these and glad you didn't encounter any "errors" (shit happens).

My wife just texted me that huge honkin' Grateful Dead box just showed up. Can't wait to get home.

Such a treat! Florence is interrupting my listening but soon things will be just exactly perfect.

Mine was a birthday present from my in-laws. Not that they knew it at the time.
